About EHRR

The Essex Human Rights Review (EHRR) is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary, academic journal which aims to address contemporary human rights issues. The EHRR is associated with the internationally renowned Essex Human Rights Centre at the University of Essex. Sharing the Centre's international and multidisciplinary approach to human rights theory and practice, the EHRR embraces work from the social and political sciences, philosophy, legal studies and literature.

The journal aims to highlight new human rights developments through academic papers, conference reports, conference proceedings, book reviews, and interviews with leading figures in the field. The EHRR publishes biannual issues online, and annual special issues online and in print.

The EHRR Editorial Board traditionally comprises four doctoral students from a wide range of departments at the University of Essex. The journal is proud to have a number of outstanding human rights practitioners and theorists on its Advisory Board, and also draws on the considerable expertise of the Human Rights Centre and University of Essex alumni, many of whom continue to work in the field in academic institutions, NGOs, government departments and research establishments.
